COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBUís, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

I tried this beer on tap on April 29, 2011 at íCíest What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden copper colour with a thin white head that laced well. The aroma was citrus hops, caramel malt, and alittle spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour slightly sweet with grapefruity hops. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Like others here, the word "sessionable" immediately jumped to mind. Dry cereal malt with a bit of a caramel kick to it. Hops are the main story - really grassy/herby. Some citrus. Big bitter kick on the finish.

Cask at Burger Bar. Dry-Hopped Cask version. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size long lasting foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of resiny hops. Flavour is hoppy with an average length bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I hope they can have this on cask year-round.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2011
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 on tap at the Burger bar. Mild hop aromas. Light orange colour. A nice citrus, hoppy ale, without an assault on the palate. Above average palate. Hits the mark.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 2011-05-06. Crisp orange amber body with a nice foamy white head and lace. 3+ flavor is pleasantly hoppy, mild green hops and mild resin, modest orange citrus with a citrus oil like twist to it. 7+ aroma is modest but pleasant, orange citrus is entangled with modest resin character. Average palate is a bit light and lightly carbonated, but pretty decent for a cask. Significantly better than previous sample. 7/3/7/3/15 Cask dry-hopped with Simcoe, Burger Bar, Toronto

2011-04-08. Crisp golden orange, nice white head and lace. 3+ interesting hop character. Herbaceous leafy character and very muted citrus kiss. 6+ Flavour has similar green herbaceous hops, floral hints, grassy touches linger in the finish, mild pale malt base but hops are the main event. Lingering leafy notes in the finish. Smooth average palate. Decent but the hop profile is not to my own tastes. Other ratings reference more citrus than I found in it so perhaps I will re-rate this if future samplings are more to my tastes. 7/3/6/3/15 At Volo, Toronto
